Right after last night’s post I heard from the guy. Paraphrased:
Bitter: What are you up to tonight?
Me: Eating popcorn and watching tv.
Bitter: Your not gonna invited me over lol
[Typed “I don’t share popcorn with people who can’t spell you’re” but forgot to hit send]
(15 minute later)
Bitter: Do you throw your phone across the room after you get a text?
Me: I’m very busy with tv.
So I think that’s settled. But when I got up this morning something happened and my first thought was “Oh I want to tell [my student].” And I realized that I’m more eager to talk to and spend time with a high school girl than this guy. It was a great reminder that a) my gut tells me when I like someone (on any level, and this guy doesn’t even meet student-teacher likeability levels) and b) I’m not so messed up that I can’t form relationships and share things. Even if those things are beating your score in Words with Friends.
